FBI Director Sheepishly Admits January 6 Was Not an Insurrection

Whoops! Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), the only Member of Congress that we know of who has been dumb enough to have sex with an obvious Chinese honeypot spy, probably shouldn’t have asked FBI Director Christopher Wray if January 6 was a real insurrection. But he did!

Swalwell asked Wray the question in a committee hearing on Thursday, which forced the FBI Director to finally tell the truth: No, the January 6th protests were not an “insurrection” under any legal definition of the word. If Wray had claimed it was an insurrection, he’d have been perjuring himself under oath. (Spoiler alert: Eric Swalwell is not a very smart attorney.)

Other than that stunning admission, the rest of FBI Director Wray’s testimony was either evasive or noncommittal when it came to talking about the mostly peaceful protests of January 6th. Wray is still insisting that many of the protesters were “armed,” and told Congress that “more significant charges” are coming in the near future for more protesters.

While keeping a straight face, Wray described some of the “weapons” that were carried into the US Capitol by Trump supporters:

Kevlar (not a weapon), tactical vests (not a weapon), and bear spray (technically a defensive tool that no criminal in human history has ever used to carry out a crime).

Recognizing that as a BS answer as to whether the Trump supporters were armed, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), who is not an idiot like Rep. Eric Swalwell, asked Wray, “Firearms? Anybody bring firearms?”

This forced Christopher Wray to deliver an answer that can only be described as technically not a straight-up lie, but definitely bureaucratic nonsense-speak:

“I can think of at least one instance where there was an individual with a gun inside the Capitol, but for the most part, the weapons were weapons other than firearms.”

 

We know from all of the unsealed indictments that there were only three people arrested in DC on January 6th on firearms charges. One was a person who showed up near the US Capitol several hours after the protests were over. It’s unclear whether this person was a Trump supporter at all, or just a guy who picked a really bad time to go for a walk near the Capitol while carrying a concealed weapon.

Another was a Trump supporter who had a gun locked inside his vehicle several blocks away from the Capitol.

He left his gun in his truck while he went to the Capitol, and a nosy DC cop spotted it as he was walking by. The police then waited and arrested the unarmed Trump supporter on a gun charge when he came back to his truck.

So yes, technically, he was “in the Capitol.” And yes, he “had a gun” (locked in his vehicle several blocks away from the protests). But he did not have his gun “inside the Capitol,” as the charges against him patiently explain.

A third individual, a man from Maryland, was caught carrying a concealed firearm “on Capitol grounds” on January 6th. But that guy is not accused of actually entering the Capitol building.

Out of the three gun arrests on January 6th, none of the cases involved a gun actually being carried inside the US Capitol. Some insurrection!

But then the hearing got really exciting. Jim Jordan jumped up on a desk, pulled out a pair of six guns and started firing shots into the ceiling like Yosemite Sam while shouting, “Let my people goooooo!” Thomas Massie ripped off his jacket to reveal a suicide vest as he grabbed Christopher Wray in a headlock. Resistance leader Kevin McCarthy then strode into the hearing chamber and began reading a list of demands, starting with the release of all the Trump supporters being tortured in solitary confinement in the DC jail.

Oh, wait. No, that didn’t happen. Most of the GOP Members just sat there like lumps while waiting their turn to ask lukewarm questions that sort of played down the January 6 events a little bit. None of them grilled Wray about the Trump supporters who are currently being forced to wipe their butts with their fingers, because the Department of Justice is denying them toilet paper and other amenities.

The hearing was mostly a bust, with no fireworks from any of the Republicans. But at least Eric Swalwell managed to undermine the Democrats’ cause, by getting the FBI Director to finally admit that it wasn’t an insurrection.

    1. When time comes to vote for these do nothing Republicans don’t. We need more Republican like MTG in Congress that will fight for the rights of the America people. These Rinos are useless they are there for perks an a paycheck.

        1. I think he was a hold over from Obama. Trump should have gotten rid of him and so many others that are part of the creep state.

          1. That was, perhaps, Trumps biggest mistake: Not replacing Obama’s people with his own as is customarily done.

          1. You give the Socialist Democrat traitors with credit for Intellengece than I do!!!!!!

        2. Speaking of President Trump’s fault for hiring Christoher
          Wray. It was a mistake on Trump’s behalf. How many generals that Lincoln had to go threw before finding U.S. Grant? Often times it is hard to find the right person to do the job they are hired to do.

          1. Hell, Trump couldn’t even get his Cabinet approved by do nothing Communist RINO’s, working with Communist Dumbats and the Communist Chamber of Commerce! Look how fast they approved a fraudulent election of Commie Joe and his crime family, then swiftly have approved everyone of his dingbat commie Cabinet and Secretary picks! The Deep State is the Enemy of Freedom and they are all related to Media Elites in the worst Political Coup since the Civil War! Election Fraud is High Treason and all these Politicians are guilty as sin and they are using the FBI just as FDR did when he violated the constitution and incarcerated political enemies!

        3. The only thing Donald J Trump didn’t do Correct was Flush the WHOLE Toilet! Now he knows better. Clean house, same as a hostile takeover of a multi million dollar business, Only other mistake, spoke too much and trusted too many. You’ll see a big change if he jumps in again. Me hell no, I’d retire at piece cuz he will be maced at every turn again, ain’t worth it! ??????Too many ?s no pussy?

        4. It was a good hire. It revealed Wray was a traitor just like Comey, et al. He proved a point that the FBI, DOJ are compromised at the top. Wray immediately drug his feet on Fitton’s FOIA requests on multiple issues.

      1. You are so correct.
        We do have a few good Republicans working hard for our freedoms, but the Democrats and the Republicans who turned their backs on Donald, they all deserve the guillotine. Blade sharpeners, anyone?

    2. Swalwell, could easily win a contest for the dumbest member of the House. From his blowing a Fxrt on National TV, to getting hooked up with a Chinese Spy, to his inane Blabbering on topics he is grossly uniformed about…..he’s a waste of space and oxygen.

      1. From the mouth of Babies and lame of brain, sometimes strange and wonderful words do come out. Thank you Rep. Eric Swalwell, am sure your colleague’s will support your re-election bid when that time come around…don’t bet on it, As for weapons charge? Dose that mean that the firearm in question must be in hand or locked away In a vehicle, or on the person unloaded…being the magazine not in the weapon at the time? Or was it a revolver with a triger guard attached? What was it? the weapons in question?

    3. The “Mostly Peaceful Protest” was just that
      until two groups holding their own Rally’s nearby ended and came to join in and do their usual anarchy.
      The group’s ? Antifa and BLM.
      THAT was the point at which the change was made.
      And which other groups give support and even finance those two groups? The Communist Party and the now Marxist Democrat Party. Disbelief? Recall the posed picture for the News Media of Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Leadership down on one knee together with bowed heads in submission to Antifa and BLM groups?

    4. insurrection

      a violent uprising against an authority or government.

      Now GO watch the videos…A$$Wipes!!

    5. People think McCarthy is doing a good job? Personally, he is just another establishment shill that is no more interested in getting these Patriots freed than he is in getting a Colonoscopy!

    6. insurrection

      a violent uprising against an authority or government.

      Now GO watch the videos…A$$Wipes!!

    7. There was only one gun fired in the so called insurrection and that was by a Capitol Police/or a secret service person, who’s name is yet to be announced and that weapon killed an inocent bystander there touring the building and was a veteran woman.

  1. WHY IS NOT ANY OF THIS EVER BEEN AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC BEORE AND NOW 5 MONTHS LATER COMING TO LIGHT ?

  2. When it happened , one FBI person said that Trump was giving a speech, a mile away, 12 minutes from finishing his speech, when the capitol was broken into. Now they are saying that it was Trump people? They also said that they had arrested members of Antifa, BLM, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Insurgents USA. all in the capitol. So where were the Trump supporters? If they were a mile away, it would take20 minutes or more to walk to the capitol. Is the FBI blaming Trump just because they want to?

      1. I have a huge hunch that’s why “POLOSI” don’t want the investigation. She was apart of by not wanting to order the national guarded. Maybe more…

  3. Does this democrat/socialist puppet really think that the American will accept wearing defensive clothing to an occasion that threaten to have violent Antifa and Black Lives Matter is carrying a weapon. What a paid idiot we have in charge of American law enforcement. No wonder there is such a lack of respect for this kind of shitty person.
    The only guns inside the people’s capital building that I have been made aware of were held by capital police one of who shot an unarmed woman in the head and killed her. Too bad she was not wearing a Kevlar helmet.

      1. Thats the truth! And if truth be known the Democrats set this up ! How in the world would anyone in their right mind believe that the capital with all of congress in session be that easy to be taken over????

    1. the reptilians are taking over the indoctrinated minds of the commie lefts,the modernistic,computer baby, bezos and soros adoring jack of all trtades, where there are farts, there are demons.

  4. And who was that Capitol Police Officer again? I don’t remember hearing his name! And why did he feel the need to shoot anybody? Or was it just a stray bullet without an intended target like happens regularly in Ghettos across the country?

    1. The shooter has been traced through surveillance videos. Anyone in Congress either knows him or can find out his name in 5 minutes. He’s in a business suit, so, not clear he is CP. Maybe someone from the Sergeant-at-Arms office?

  5. Pelosi knew all about it Trump supporters was not the first ones in the building I was watching it live it was atifa gangs first and some BLM that went in first

  6. I had hoped with the firing of James Comey and the appointment of Christopher Wray as FBI Director that President Trump would have the legal support that he would need to “drain the swamp” (as it were). Instead, Director Wray’s questionable affiliation/association with the Deep State has left me speechless and without reliable direction! Now that Joe Biden is nominally in charge, it would appear that the Deep State has been resurrected to its former existence (if it ever went dark in the first place!) and Chris Wray is still FBI Chief. The swamp gas is beginning to disperse and his true allegiance is becoming more obvious! What more can I say? Anybody out there?

  7. When it happened , one FBI person said that Trump was giving a speech, a mile away, 12 minutes from finishing his speech, when the capitol was broken into. Now they are saying that it was Trump people? They also said that they had arrested members of Antifa, BLM, Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, Insurgents USA. all in the capitol. So where were the Trump supporters? If they were a mile away, it would take20 minutes or more to walk to the capitol. Is the FBI blaming Trump just because they want to? had to borrow this from a lady she is so right !!!

  8. As a registered independent, I won’t vote for ANY commiecrat, but I sure am getting sick of all the emails I’m getting from the “Republican” party asking for donations! Donate to what? A bunch of spineless, idiotic fools who won’t stand up for American ideals? Who take chi-com money? Who vote to impeach President Trump for no reason? Who won’t take on big tech? Who vote for Pelosi’s “insurgency panel”? Not one thin dime from this Cowboy!!

    1. Great points Rick. I have been a registered Republican since 1972 and have supported Winred several times. It seems that the majority of Republicans get to DC for the first time and immediately have their backbones removed. My current Representative supported Pelosi’s January 6 commission – my support for him has terminated.
      We need more Jim Jordans and Josh Hawleys in the House and Senate.
      My support will go to individuals who put America First, not only in their words, but in their ACTIONS!
      Dump Cheney. Dump Kinzinger. Dump Romney. Dump all RINOs. Buck Fiden

    2. My sentiment exactly as a conservative independent. 60 request a day for money and what have they done over the last many years under Boehner, Ryan and McConnell??? Nothing but rollover.

    3. Christopher Wray was one of many DEEPSHIT STATE GANG holdovers, courtesy of Obama, Eric Holder, and Loretta Lynch. And then there was Trump backstabber BILL BARR, Obama’s personal bagpipe blower. How did people like Fauci, Birx, and the like get anywhere close to Trump. All of Government Representatives must have been involved in the Coup to steal the 2020 ELECTION from Trump.

    4. Same here. I am getting letters from Republicans who want me to donate money for their cause. They want me to sign petitions and then if I can; donate from $25 to $1,000? Really? If the Republican Party has a lot money, then why do they want me to to contribute to their cause? And you know what? Not much of them mention Trump! I stopped supporting the Repukiican Party back in January

    5. I am sick and tired of them asking for money too. I want the Republican candidates to get in, but it shouldn’t depend so much on how much money they spend. And their attitudes aren’t very nice when they ask for money either. It really “bugs” me!

  9. All the rot and fifth comes out of D C . Thats where the sanitation snd cleanup should start. Once that is complete the rats will leave the area. Even the two head rats.

  10. Why now? Eric Swalwell should be impeached from his seat! This is telling us they spend 6 month trying to put the BLAME ON TRUMP! BUT the people are no fool as these phony lawyers in the democrats party! WE ALL KNOW IT FALL ON PELOSI AND SCHUMER! PELOSI REFUSED TRUMP ASKING FOR 10 THOUSAND NATIONAL GUARD! ONLY TO BRING IN 5 THOUSAND AFTER SHE GOT JOHN SULLIVAN TO LEAD THE RIOT ON JANUARY 6TH!

  11. There was no insurrection on Jan. 6 but it’s beginning to look like there will have to be one in order to take back this country from the corrupt Marxist communist who have control of this country right now.

  12. Personally I don’t care what Wray says, I would like to see the hostages released, and the real criminals prosecuted.

    1. Right, Syd;
      And arrest the guards who are torturing their prisoners with beatings, continued solitary confinement for no reason, at least one – possibly more – beatings literally knocking one prisoner’s eye out by a viciously racist guard for spoken reasons of race – need I say more? Those guards belong in prison celle! This is supposed to be the USA, not North Korea! A lecturer in an Air Force Survival School told his class that the most sadistic captors without provocation that they would actually encounter would be the North Koreans. Looks like Washington, DC is just about as bad.

  13. Let’s not forget that, the Senate was just beginning to debate the need to investigate the integrity of the election. I have no doubt in my mind this “insurrection” was a set up by the deep state to shut down the topic of a false, fraudulent and conspired election to get Donald Trump out of the White House. Remember Hillary’s words, “At all cost we must get Donald Trump out of Washington.” This would include the pandemic. The only thing standing in the way of communists destroying America is a leader who inspires the true patriots and can win, lead and expose the evil of the powers ruling in Washington. Trump was exposing and draining them of power.

  14. How did we let these corrupt Marxist communist take control of our country? Marxism and communism should be banned in this country and anyone who supports it or promotes it should be arrested and prosecuted and imprisoned for unpatriotic activity. America is a republic and communism goes completely against the constitution the we have.

  15. Holding Americans in unsanitary, inhumane conditions with little to no outside privileges, with no bail and no specific charges is closer to communism and third world prisons than the American rule of law. And this should make us all afraid…..very afraid!! Pelosi and her henchmen are hanging on to hours and hours of video and no one’s attorney has access to it or has ever seen it. Like I said, be afraid.

  16. They are holding these people without bail or a speedy trial which you are entitled to in this country for no other reason than to make examples out of them for protesting and questioning the election results of the 2020 election. This is not how things are suppose to be done in America. This is something that 3rd world countries do to punish there opponents to shut them up.

  17. Profound Revelation to many – truth, usually late to the party, but she always appears and makes an unforgettable impression. Accountability is the last to arrive and usually requires and army of accompaniment.

  18. Sure we can say what happen and keep on whining about. We need to start talking about how to get these people out of office. “ We need to take them out no matter what” quoting the biggest corrupt witch Hillary. MAGA it can be done if we stick together.

  19. this is why I will not donate to the do nothing GOP to waste my meager funds on a do nothing group of Rhinos, that do nothing but take their not deserved pay check and do not represent the people their people. McConnell make some demands get them active or get them out. My Wa Senators are the worst of all, haven’t seen or heard from one of them since reelected and neither will respond to any letters or requests sent to them. Don’t ask for anymore donations.

  20. Today being June 15,2021, MAKES THIS ARTICLE UNTRUE, as some of the comments are after 4:00pm, and the time presently is only 3:53pm.

  21. The first person up the steps was a BLM member shouting (I saw it live on Videotape) “This is WAR; Follow me”. The Media did not cover his arrest and confiscation of his $90,000 bank account. He was an import from Utah. They also did not report that his lawyer says that money was not related to his Capitol Bldg. invasion. Probably right, but let’s not overlook the fact that before Jan. 6 while John Sullivan was in Utah CNN paid him $35000.00 to go to DC to participate as a “journalist” in the Jan 6 assault. Other media contributed another $35000 to the trip. I saw this report in the US edition of an International Newwspaper.

  22. This makes me so angry there no words for the Democrats evil behavior. I think about our fellow Americans being locked up in a Horrible jail in DC How do they sleep at night? That’s someone son or father they locked up and the most important is it’s a American which they strip of all rights. Next it could be one of us!

  23. When the author commented that “Eric Swalwell is not a very smart attorney,” I believe he would be quite accurate in making the comment more general by stating, “Eric Swalwell is not very smart” PERIOD. It does not take a Mensa Society IQ to understand that if she’s a nine, and you’re a two and a politician, there is an excellent chance that she is a honeypot!

  24. In Florida you must belong to democrat or republican party to vote in any election besides the presidential one. All my life I have been a no political preference voter and finally had to change to one of the two parties. I chose republican because I refused to be associated with the scum on the left. I don’t really like being a republican because, with a few notable exceptions, they are spineless and weak. I am a conservative I admit but that does not make me a republican.

  25. The only thing I regret that wasn’t done on Jan.6th so-called “insurrection” was to drag the scum rats out by their neckties & string them up to the street lamp posts.
    They used to hang horse thieves so can’t we agree that election thieves deserve equal justice for America & “We the People” who demand it?
    (oh, I forgot the Justice Dept. are “Rats” too ) Justice is not for all anymore.
